Yeah, the talent level between Buffalo and say Philly or Pittsburgh is large. Losses of key personnel by deeper, better teams tends to not impact the on-ice product as much as those for mid-tier or lower-tier squads. Buffalo needs to focus on acquiring their own dominant talents, increasing their depth. And yes, if they stay healthy, they're probably on the playoff side of the bubble this year.
I still think teams are going to push them hard in a physical sense and we'll find out if John Scott deters anyone from giving Miller a rough time around the crease. Anyone in the division should be looking for a competitive advantage and if I'm looking to knock a division foe down the standings, putting Enroth in net as the Sabres starter probably knocks Buffalo out of contention for the post-season.
